Question 9.1a:
A typical hot air balloon can carry 3-5 passengers in a wicker basket and has a total mass of m = 468 kg including passengers, not including the
mass of air inside the balloon. The density of hot air inside the stationary balloon is 0.952 kg/m3 and the density of the cooler outside air
= 1.28 kg/m3
Phot
is cool
Determine the volume of hot air required for the balloon to be in equilibrium so that it neither sinks nor rises in the air.
m3
Question 9.1b:
A small boat has mass M = 85.0 kg and can displace 0.752 m3 (199 gallons) of water before sinking. The boat is floating in water of density
Pwater = 1.00 x 103 kg/m3.
Determine the maximum cargo weight that can be added to the boat without making it sink.
